Join hosts J.D. Barker, Christine Daigle, and Kevin Tumlinson as they discuss the week’s publishing topics, including Book Riot’s thoughts on the future of bookstores. Then, stick around as Christine chats with romance author Mariana Zapata!
Mariana Zapata is a former indie author who recently signed a trad deal for her latest best-selling novel, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me. She also has an excellent handle on TikTok—at last check, she had over a quarter billion views! Mariana lives in a small town in Colorado with her husband and two oversized children—her beloved Great Danes, Dorian and Kaiser. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, spending time outside, forcing kisses on her boys, or pretending to write.
